Frequently Asked Questions

Answer 1: Online registration takes place from March 1 – March 15, 2020.
Answer 2: The paper applications must be completed, mailed in to the Michigan Conference Office, and post-marked by March 15, 2020 to be included in the random selection. The paper application will be included with the March Michigan Memo newsletter.
Answer: If you use the same choice for an alternate lodging request as you used for your first choice, you limit your opportunities of being selected for a housing option for camp meeting. As an example, if you selected 30-Amp with water and the random selection process list has already filled all of these sites, there would be no other possibilities if you used the same choice as your second option. However, if you choose a different alternative housing option such as 50-Amp with water, 30-Amp no water or 30-Amp full hook-up, etc. there might still be a few openings in those types of campsites not filled by the prior random selection list of applicants. The cost of an alternate choice might be higher than your first choice, but if your goal is to maximize the possibility to attend camp meeting, the alternate choice might help you secure a site.
Answer: This information can be extremely useful in the event of different types of emergency situations such as medical, severe weather, lost child, fire, non-camp meeting related emergencies, campground population tracking, and planning. For minor children (17 years old or younger) please include the child's date of birth. Also, a medical CONSENT TO TREAT form for each child must be signed by a parent or legal guardian for that child. Separate forms should be completed for each child. Please make copies of the form included in the March Michigan Memo. The form can also be downloaded and printed from the Michigan Conference website at
Answer: If a person has a disability or medical condition that requires a certain type of accommodation or location, etc. or if they would like their housing assignment to be located near the lodging site of another camp meeting attendee such as a family member, friend or home church member this is where their request should be placed. If you are requesting to be located near someone or a group from a specific church, if possible, please give the names of at least two of the other individuals or families you would like to be near rather than saying that you would like to be near the "Mayberry Church group". We will do our best to meet all your requested accommodation needs, but it is not a guarantee.
Answer: It is helpful when making campsite assignments to know the type and size of the camping unit that you will be using to provide the most adequate campsite to meet your tent, pop-up camper, pickup camper, travel-trailer, fifth wheel or motor home needs.
Answer: No. To be completely fair, your accommodation goes back into the pool and another random selection will be done. Please notify Accommodations as soon as you know you will not be needing your spot at (517) 316-1581 or (989) 427-4126 after June 8, 2020.

Answer: There are two sizes available. The cost for the queen is $20/each and the twin is $10/each for the entire camp meeting session. Must be picked up and returned at the Accommodations building.

Answer: Yes. There are some nearby resorts and campgrounds, as well as hotels in Edmore (3 miles west) and Alma (17 miles east), which may have vacancies. A list of some of these options can be found on the website, however availablility, quality, suitability and desirability are not guaranteed by the Michigan Conference. You will need to be responsible for contacting the location, deciding acceptability, and making reservations for yourself.

Answer: The speed limit during camp meeting is 10 miles per hour, and only licensed drivers are allowed to operate any type of motorized vehicle (including golf carts) on the campgrounds. When following or approaching a tram, if the tram is stopped, all vehicles including golf carts and other full-sized vehicles such as cars and trucks must stop. Only emergency vehicles are not required to stop, however, even those vehicles should use extreme caution when passing a stopped tram. If a tram is between stops and is moving, you are allowed to pass when it is clear to do so. Remember to always use utmost care when driving any vehicle on the campgrounds. The same rules that apply when approaching a school bus also apply to trams.

Answer: If you will be bringing a pet to camp meeting, you must check the "Pets" box when registering online or indicate it in the appropriate space at the bottom of the "Camping" section of the paper Camp Meeting application. A “Pet Hold Harmless” form must be completed and given to camp meeting accommodations when you arrive. Pets are only allowed to stay with you in certain sections of the campgrounds and are not allowed in any buildings such as cabins, cottages, dorms, or classrooms, administration areas. Documented service animals are allowed. Please see the Pet Policy in the related section of the General Information & Policies sheets in the back of the registration form packet. No exotic pets allowed.

Answer: In order to maximize fairness for all, a random, computer-generated list of accommodation choices is generated to fill the accommodations available. All applications, both online and paper, will be merged together for the random selection.

Answer: For the safety of everyone, the large loop trams only stop at designated stops that are located at various points within loops E and F and the center road that runs through the campground.
In order to meet more individual transportation needs there are several on-demand volunteer-driven shuttle golf carts that can be summoned by radio for assistance. Campground loop hosts, transportation shuttle drivers, and shuttle office workers located in the office trailer outside the west entrance to the fitness center / main auditorium building can call for available shuttles when requested.
Often, a shuttle golf cart driver can be hailed to pick up passengers if they are not already full or are on their way to a pre-arranged pick-up. Some shuttle drivers will ask people if they need a ride if they see someone that looks like they would appreciate assistance. For your own safety, please be aware of other traffic on nearby roadways when trying to flag down or entering or exiting from a shuttle vehicle.
Many of the golf carts seen on the campgrounds are privately owned. They are not part of the camp meeting shuttle system and do not generally give rides to people on demand, unless out of courtesy by their owners.

Answer: Only one vehicle is allowed per campsite. Extra vehicles may be parked in the overflow parking field to the west of Loop F or near the warehouse on Quarter Road. (Motor home owners are allowed one vehicle in addition to their motor home.)

If no one is able to answer when your call, please leave a brief message summarizing your question. Be sure and include your name and phone number. You will be contacted as soon as it is possible.
